Court: No California same-sex marriages during appeal

A federal appeals court in San Francisco on Wednesday refused to allow same-sex marriages in California while a case on the issue works its way through the courts.

Last year, a federal judge declared that Proposition 8, a voter-approved measure banning same-sex marriages in California, was unconstitutional.

The civil rights challenge is now at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit, where the issue is still unresolved.

Several gay and lesbian couples asked the court to be allowed to wed in the meantime. However, the three-judge appellate panel issued a brief order Wednesday that rejected the motion "at this time."

    Its not right. Its not natural. Its just plain gross. Its bad enough were getting it shoved in our faces on prime time tv (with that gay boy kissing). It just makes me want to puke. If God meant for it to be that way, he wouldve only created one or the other, not both. Right?
